The January window is fast approaching for our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern after a mixed start to their Premier League campaign.
The regular Blues in the Tavern are hoping that manager Antonio Conte can persuade the board to invest more than they did in the summer, in what looked like a difficult few months for the Italian coach in SW6. Chelsea look thin on the ground in most areas of the pitch and most of our punters think that many of the players are already looking tired and fatigued, despite not being at the halfway point of the season yet.
Our barman thinks that Conte must get this window right, to not only secure a top-four finish but to run the two Manchester clubs hard in the second half of the season, especially if he wants to close the current point gap.
With that in mind, our landlord believes that if Conte can persuade Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, to at least look to improve these TWO areas, Chelsea will reap the benefits.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
